Help us preserve our groundwater by replacing your impervious (impermeable) asphalt or concrete with pervious (permeable) asphalt, concrete, unmortared pavers, grave, or other permeable material. $1 per square foot of replaced hardscape.
This rebate is intended to incentivize those who are re-doing their concrete or asphalt, with an alternative that helps recharge our aquifers. There’s a great local magazine from the Resource Conservation District of Santa Cruz County that shows many ways to infiltrate water, and offers ideas for related retrofits- it’s available online at “Slow it Sink it, Spread it”.
- Requires pre- and post inspection. We reserve the right to deny applications where post inspections are made more than 90 days after pre inspection. REQUEST AN INSPECTION
- Participants must agree to leave all landscape retrofits in place for five (5) years.
- No labor or materials rebated, only square footage of replaced hardscape.
- Rebate checks are issued to the account holder- whether it belongs to the property owner, tenant or manager
